I brought this game at my local blockbuster, I had heard some bad things about but I took a chance and got it anyway.
And it paid off. The game in my option is great. Smooth graphics, Good A.I loads of cars 200! And loads of tracks including rally! Great sounds and the new Visual Gravity System (V.G.S) is good the best thing is if you don't like it you can switch it off! The physics are really realistic and very good to race with and the handling is good.
Overall the game is great fun and a real alterative to the over-hyped g.t 4 buy it love it!
In terms of format, it's very similar to Gran Turismo 4. There are many cars in GT4 that are present in Enthusia but likewise, there are many cars in Enthusia which are missing from GT4 (I know, it's quite hard to believe!) In terms of quantity, Enthusia does not deliver the same amount of cars as GT4 but then, what racing game does?? However, I think you'd agree that 211 cars from about 50 manufacturers is plenty enough for most people :-)
In terms of courses, there are a good selection, although the majority of them are fantasy courses which have been created by the programmers at Konami (only Nurburgring and Tsukuba are real-life courses) However, do not let this put you off: they are well designed and challenging.
Graphically, it is almost on par with GT4. Cars look sleek, photo-realistic, very true to life. The physics of the cars is also extremely realistic, possibly to an even greater extent than GT4.
There are four racing modes: Enthusia Life (career mode), Driving Revolution (this is similar to GT's License challenges), Time Trial and Free Racing. Unlike in GT4, you can not buy cars, you can only win them via random chance after completing a race. Sometimes, you may not win anything but during career mode you acquire points which up your skill level, etc.
By competing in career mode, completing the Driving Revolution challenges and racing in Free Racing mode, you gradually acquire more and more cars which you can use in Free Racing and Time Trial modes. I personally love trying out the cars on the 0-1000m dash, which is also possible in GT4.
Some people have mentioned that if you tap a wall, another car, etc you lose points.Read more ›
Drifting around on this game is actually 'manageable' as opposed to incredibly difficult on other games.
The major annoyance with this game is that you can tap anyone (or anyone tap you for that matter) during a race, and all the cars you should in theory have won, are lost. From one tap! So you must start the race again.
(granted it stops you ramming your opponent like you can on gt4 with no punishment but its very frustrating sometimes!)
Anyways, buy it just for the great handling.Gets some used to, but persevere, and its worth it.
The driving characteristics are a bit ropey on the RWD cars too. Yes it's possible to do a proper doughnut, unlike GT4, but at speed, it's so easy to get into an un-recoverable tank-slapper. I've got a TVR, so i know what RWD is like to drive, and if my car handled like that on a track i'd think i had 2 soft back tyres!
Could've been great, but just missed the mark

As a fan of Gran Turismo since day one I have a baseline to compare this game with. I'd say it feels like its development is at a level somewhere in between Gran Turismo 2 and 3. Read morePublished on 14 Feb. 2011 by malc400
